Ebbie Drayton

My name is Ebbie, but many know me as NaturallyEJ or EJHalo.  I’ve been natural since 2006. I love to blog/vlog about my natural hair experiences. I also enjoy travel, great food, wine and being a wife/mommy. Many who know me realize that I am an open book and I love to share my experiences and be a help to anyone who needs it. I am no guru, but I am enjoying my journey and love having you all apart of it!

I am the founder of the Charleston Natural Hair Expo, which has brought in over 1,000 attendees and over 40 vendors to celebrate those who embrace the various textures of their hair. This event reaches far beyond just natural hair. I have traveled the world from London, to Dubai, Costa Rica to Paris and many more connecting in some places with brands to collaborate on current and future projects. I have participated on several panels as a guest at natural hair events since 2010. When I realized my passion for educating & providing a platform for healthy lifestyle, fashion, beauty, entrepreneurship & natural hair to the Charleston market; I wanted this expo to be at the forefront.  I have worked closely with companies such as a number of companies on campaigns/events in SC, GA, FL, TX and other major markets.
